Making the capital city sound

Under the motto "Berlin needs music!", the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin will once again swarm out on the weekend of 4 and 5 September to nring music to the capital city – with chamber concerts in public squares, in front of social institutions and on Berlin's waterways.

Sat, 4.9.: »Tour de la musique«

On Saturday, 4 September, the musicians of the DSO invite you to a "Tour de la musique" at ten public places in Berlin. Starting at 11 a.m., small pop-up concerts in different formations can be experienced at various corners of the city of Berlin. The audience can follow the tour to its individual stops, ideally by bicycle, as if on a musical bike tour, collecting stamps at each station to receive a DSO surprise bag or even win two free tickets to a concert by the orchestra.

Live music is not a luxury

With "Berlin needs music!", the DSO, in cooperation with the Bürgerstiftung Berlin, the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz, the Humboldt Forum and Unkraut e. V., and with the financial support of its Circle of Friends, expresses the conviction that the experience of live music is not a luxury but the filfilment of a basic human need. At the same time, the campaign is intended to draw attention to the continuing plight of independent cultural practitioners and specifically solicits donations for the emergency fund of the German Orchestra Foundation.
